Forty two scientific articles detailing the results of this research are abstracted and interrelated. Nine papers deal with the optical properties of solids including Ab Initio Calculation of Crystal Tensor, Light Scattering, Morphic Effects, Group Theory, and Impurity Induced Absorption. Twenty eight papers deal with surface properties including Surface Excitations, Spacial Dispersion Effects, Surface Roughness, Thermodynamic Properties, Lattice Dynamics and Edge Modes. Three papers discuss the possibility of the coexistence of Bardeen-Cooper-Schrieffer BCS pairing and the Peierls distortion in one-dimensional conducting systems. Finally two papers reported the results of Raman and Brillouin scattering experiments. The work has wide implications for laser interactions with solids and, electronic and optical signal processing and transmisssion. Author
